Scott Quigg is shocked that bookmakers have him as favourite to beat Rendall Munroe on Saturday, June 16. Quigg challenges Munroe for the vacant interim WBA super bantamweight crown on Hatton Promotions ‘Road To Glory’ bill at Manchester Velodrome and, although Quigg is British champion and undefeated in 24 fights, the Leicester southpaw is a former European champion and challenged Toshiaki Nishioka for the WBC crown.

Bury’s Quigg, 23, said: “Bookies have me as favourite which is strange. I am the underdog. What Rendall has achieved and the level he has fought at is fantastic. It is a massive step up from where I have been fighting. I have only had two major championship fights and people are saying my opponents Jason Booth and Jamie Arthur had seen their best days.

“I am not disagreeing and realise how much I’ll be up against it. I haven’t even touched his level, but I know what I’m capable of doing. There is no pressure on me. The only pressure I have is the fear of losing.

“On paper he should turn up and win, but I am one million per-cent confident I will win.”

The ‘Road To Glory’ bill also features a vacant European light-middleweight title fight between Ryan Rhodes and Sergey Rabchenko, Martin Murray is in championship action and Richard Towers faces Michael Wallisch for the vacant EU heavyweight crown.
